    So I've already posted this in the recording section but i figure ill post here as well in case some of ya dont hear it.

    Leo and I have been working pretty hard on this song and just had Jon reprogram the drums as per how he'd play it. So check it out its the first track called Inferno

    Very nice. Who's solo is that at around 4:50?
    Leo's got himself an arsenal! WTF
    What type of vocals are you thinking for this? (I'm not a vocalist, just asking)
    Have you tried different styles out? I'm just wondering because, the music is wicked fresh, and vocals can make or break stuff like this. \m/

    Hey man, thats leo rockin the lead :shred: we got a few vocalists interested we are looking for a nice mix between some heavy screams and clean vocals for the melodies and stuff. We would also like some light keys in the background for ambience in the long run as well. Thanks for the kind words

    I am reeally enjoying it. The cleans you are hearing at the end are actually the vetta through direct XLRs i havent got the SPDIF up and running yet but i am ever soo slowly workin on it :lol: one thing at a time. Tis a great amp so far and it does everything i could want it to do and more, gonna try it out in the band situation this friday with the 4x12 and 2x15 so im lookin forward to it

    Great stuff here. Definitely Meshuggah-inspired.

    I gotta be honest, I don't hear meshuggah. I hear some tech, some REALLY good hooks in there - something not too many can pull off in a technical metal type setting. See, this is where the vocalist can make it or break it.

    Luckily they are smart enough not to keep it going on throughout the song. In the beginning I heard it, but they didn't take the easy way out and follow that road through the song. It didn't last very long.

    Jesus Christ that is awesome! That guitar tone is fat as hell! Really cool riffs and song writing too.. I hope you guys can find an awesome vocalist.
    Only thing I'd change is the snare sound.. a little more crack, less pop. :)

    Wow guys thanks alot for the kind words! Im even honored that someone can listen and say that we are inspired by Meshuggah cause we greatly are. As far as the tone goes i didnt fuck around with anything this time i went bare bones.

    Pod patch with a light compressor on the grouped channel. This is more towards the sound of Jons snare as he has one almost similar to Chris Adler, gonna be adding like 3 more toms into the mix to be able to create the size of his actual kit too lmao!

    Hey Leo, props on the solo!
    Also, just checked out the gita asmara website. AMAZING! How are you involved in this, if you don't mind me asking. One of the percussionists?

    Hey thanks a lot. :)

    For the Gita Asmara group I've played all of the instruments except the hand drums and the bamboo flutes so far. It's my 11th year with them and the intensity and sheer joy of learning and performing the music can't be beat. Occasionally I get to play electric guitar in a fusion piece but other than that it's all percussion. There's another thread relating to this here: http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/li...pping-sevenstring-gamelan-metal-goodness.html

    i sincerely hope you get a vox & keys asap, so that
    you get to open for meshuggah when they come
    to vancouver b.c.

    feel free to release a full length disc so that i may
    buy it. hell i'd buy a few coppies and give them
    as gifts to my closest friends.

    seriously. i like it. go as far as you can.

    I agree with the above post. I'd love to hear a full-length cd. It'd be kick-ass.
